    Why:
    Because it’s time for our annual underwhelming journey to getting knocked out at the last 32 stage of the Europa League by some 3rd rate Euro Club.

    US – You should all be at work at this time.

    First game and straightaway it looks very important to get a result here, on paper our results against Dortmund will decide who goes through in the group. Maybe that helps the players though, they will know they've got to come out firing from the off.

    Sounds strange in a 6 game group, but this is almost a knockout match for us - given Dortmund's record at the Westfalenstadion.

    Sanchez vs Aubameyang should be interesting assuming both start! Would love to see Aurier get to stretch his legs in this one as well.

    We are going to win this game, going with 5-0.

    Hat trick for Kane, a goal from Eriksen off a back heel and then a magical one from Sanchez from our own goalline!

    A magnificent clearance with his head that drifts and glides to the other end of the Wembley pitch, looping through the air right into the top corner ripping the net off the posts, the force of which pulls down the keepers pants whilst Poch points and laughs from the bench.


    P.S I had methamphetamines for breakfast.

    Really up for this game, a good opportunity to smash the hoodoo out of the park and get off to a decent start in the champions league.

    Somewhat concerning that Dortmund haven't conceded a goal yet in the league...

    We can beat them. We've world class players all over the pitch. Was it Poch that played Carroll and Mason in CM against them? Still annoys me.

    Despite the injuries they are still a real threat going forwards. Top of the league in germany. I'm actually pretty nervy about this one but still very excited.

    Anyway this is what the CL is all about. Let's do it. :)

    I'm proper excited for this game. Think we'll edge it too, with all their injuries.

    That was mental wasn't it. Mason, Carroll and Onomah in midfield against Dortmund.

    Probably the only time I've been really disappointed with one of Pochettino's choices. We'd played a strong team all the way through the competition, even against rubbish opponents, and then we finally get to play one of Europe's big guns and we basically forfeit the match.

    Strangely confident for tonight though. Looking forward to the anthem, the atmosphere, conceding an goal on the counter after early sustained pressure on their goal...

    Can't say their injury situation makes me any more confident. The combination of Wembley and our recent performances in Europe leaves me feeling pretty pessimistic about tonight. Fingers crossed I'm proven wrong!

    I struggled to get excited about the champions league last season, our group just felt like a higher pressure europa league group to me, hence we failed to qualify for the next round.

    This time I'm much more excited, it feels like the first time we were in it (the CL) under Redknapp and Ive a feeling the players will be more up for it this time round too. Hopefully poch rotates the league games and not tonight and I think he will.
